Tabula Rasa

There aren't too many days for me where absolutely nothing is scheduled, but today has been one of those days. The challenge of a day like this is to be able to enjoy it without getting bored. So far, so good, as:
  • I tried the new Crunchwrap Supreme at Taco Bell, which I'd been wanting to do ever since the commercials came out. (Another element of the summer is that I occasionally watch live TV instead of having to tape everything and watch it later. During the year, the only things I see live are sporting events and 24.) I liked it, just as I liked the Double-Decker Taco, the previous mixture of soft and crunchy taco shells. I also tried Baja Blast for the first time. The bluish color is weird, but it's also good stuff.

  • I played racquetball with Ben today; I hadn't played since February, and it was January since he last played. We split the two games; I missed a whole bunch of easy shots in game two. But for me, it was nice to be in much better shape than the last time. It was also a nice break from the weight-room stuff I do most of the time.

  • Dingus and I are off to see Batman Begins in a little bit. We've each seen it once already, but I'm hoping to catch some more of the little things this time. (UPDATE: It did indeed make a lot more sense the second time around.)
What do you like to do on a day when nothing's scheduled?

A good day for a celebration? Ex-Zack-ly! Happy birthday to my good friend Zack--near-neighbor, fellow burrito aficionado and all-around great guy. Hope you have a great day.

I usually try to do something I haven't done before.. or haven't done in a long time.

Yesterday I went to Lone Star Park. $3 gets you down on the rail. You don't get a reserved seat, but there are plenty of places to sit outside. Inside is a different story, but the air conditioning makes up for it. So, I did 3 things yesterday that I've never done: Saw live horse races, took pictures of live horse races, and drank Shiner out of a can (can you say 'easily amused'?).
